C. TECHNICAL ELEMENTS

The well-balanced program charts for all levels and disciplines are posted on the U.S. Figure

Skating web site at http://www.usfigureskating.org/New_Judging.aspid=355. As referenced earlier

in this announcement, U.S. Figure Skating will incorporate all changes made by the ISU with regard

to well-balanced programs. Please refer to this web site often for continuous updates.

PLANNED PROGRAM CONTENT SHEET (Required component)

All competitors entering into the 2013 qualifying competition season are required as part of their

online registration to submit a planned program content sheet (PPCS) detailing the elements in

their program(s). You may update your PPCS at www.usfsaonline.org up to two weeks prior to the

start of your competition. Failure to do so creates extra work for the officials working your

competition. You will not be allowed to receive your credential at registration until your PPCS is

submitted.

D. MUSIC

COMPETITON MUSIC INFORMATION (Required component of online registration)

U.S. Figure Skating requires all competitors to fully complete a competition music information form

as part of the online registration process.

The following information is required for each piece of music used in the composition of the short

program and free skate: composer, orchestra, duration of music, record label/number (optional

but highly recommended if obtainable).

COMPACT DISCS (CDs)

For all qualifying events during the 2013 season, CDs are the only acceptable media. CDs must be:

• Clearly marked with name (last name, first name), event entered and the music time/

length.

• Each CD must have only ONE (1) track on it. In the case of a short program and free

program, two (2) separate discs must be used. Any disc with more than one (1) track will

NOT be accepted!

• Lead in time (time before the music begins) on CDs may not exceed two (2) seconds.

• Due to compatibility and reliability reasons, music may NOT be submitted on re-recordable

"CD-RW" discs.

• Each CD must be turned in - in a paper CD sleeve with a see through window (obtainable

at any office supply store), also labeled with the skater’s name and event.

• Standard hard plastic jewel cases or other CD holders are no longer acceptable. CDs that

are not properly identified will NOT be accepted.

Competition music must be turned in at the registration desk at the time of registration. At the

Championships, competitors will not receive their credentials at registration until they turn in their

music. The originals will not be kept and forwarded on from Sectionals to Championships, rather

the Music committee will make digital copies at each event to pass the music up to the next level

of competition. The music CD’s will be returned to the competitors at the end of their final event.

Each competitor that qualifies for Sectionals or the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships will be

required to bring CD copies to the next event as backup.

4. ADVANCEMENT TO U.S. FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS

A. QUALIFIERS

For all competitors advancing to the U.S. Championships

All athletes who qualify for the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships will receive an email from

U.S. Figure Skating regarding information required and how to book hotels, purchase additional

credentials, etc.

Pairs and Dance

All pairs and dance teams will have their first competition at the sectional championships rather

than the regional championships. The top four placed teams at each sectional championship will

advance to the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. All teams advancing will receive

instructions for downloading the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating Championships announcement from

www.usfsaonline.org.

If there are fewer than four teams from one or more sections, a sufficient number of teams from

other section(s) will be permitted to enter in order to bring the number of entrants up to a

maximum of 12 teams.* These additional entrants will be selected in the order of their placement

at the comparable sectional event of the same year. If two teams are tied for the additional

place both will be permitted to enter. (*If there are already 12 or more teams entered in that

comparable event at the U.S. Championships due to international byes and/or automatic

invitations (rules 2512-2521), there will be no additional teams permitted to enter the U.S. Figure

Skating Championships for that event based on this “fewer than four” rule.

B. ALTERNATES

The fifth- and sixth-place pairs and dance teams (unless there are fill-ups) and singles skaters at

each sectional championship will be considered the first and second alternates for the 2013 U.S.

Figure Skating Championships. They will receive instructions for downloading the announcement

but do not need to submit any paperwork unless contacted by U.S. Figure Skating.

Alternates DO NOT need to mail in any paperwork or required forms unless contacted by U.S.

Figure Skating.
